2. feed/breed animals...animals that arent already breeding would move to it eat and breed...(6 uses..thats less than the weat value but hey its auto..)

3. storage...you can put 9 weat into 1...win win...

4. maybe it can be used as burning fule as well...less than coal but still useable...

Also if you jump on one from a high height and land on the hay bale block than you wont take any damage

This seems like a pretty good idea. They could be crafted with wheat in a 3x3 square.

Why are block of diamonds useful? Because they need less storage space. Like block of wheat...

I could only see this being useful if animals would eat from the hay bales when we put them on the ground. Make each hay bale require 64 wheat or something, and have it deplete as the animals eat it.

or you make a tie for it, and then you have to make a base block (like a chest) with in the crafting box completely, then you craft them together making the bale, then you will be able to add wheat to the block and you can then check on it and the animals will feed on it

Not my fault the suggestion wasn't very informative.  How should I know what they should be used for?

And I don't think it's very necessary, but they could make cool blocks for decoration.

1. Saving of place (like with iron/gold/diamond/lapis lazuli blocks)
2. Assassin's Creed. You know what I mean.

What if passive mobs have a chance to eat it like a cake and breed without you having to actually have to click them with wheat?
The fact that cats go bark is scientifically unproven to be 100% false.

Why just have a chance to?  Why not just have them always eat from it?  It'd make an automatic farm very easy.

Also, a bit off topic, OP's avatar is scary as heck, Catsgobark's avatar is funny.
I used to put funny jokes here, then I took an arrow in the knee.  See what I did there?  It's not funny anymore, seriously.
Sometimes, you just need a little more cave.

i like the idea... and uses..

1. decoration.. (strat thatched roof anyone? barns look more real?)

2. feed/breed animals...animals that arent already breeding would move to it eat and breed...(6 uses..thats less than the weat value but hey its auto..)

3. storage...you can put 9 weat into 1...win win...

4. maybe it can be used as burning fule as well...less than coal but still useable...

Hm I like it. Maybe animals could stayed attracted around hay bales. Or maybe even enabling animal spawning around it, or animals could breed themselves automatically. Of course that would need balance, especially for SMP to avoid any spamming.

I'm sure there's plenty of ideas to find, simple and effective.

This is such a good idea.
I could store my wheat like I store my diamonds. Would really cut back on space.

Brilliant idea for decoration. The chance to build one of those quaint thatched rooftops on old cottages - all the joys of rustic living and all the danger of sleeping under highly flammable cover.

I think they point more towards Jebs idea of horses in the game, however It very well could be a red herring and hasnt been confirmed yet.

Also I think It would be nice for decoration, but maybe a 2x2 square of wheat rather than a 3x3. If you think about it thats 9 wheat per block. Then time 9 by the roofing you need to cover your barn or whatever. Adds up

Why would you need so much space for Diamonds? How much Diamonds have you ever obtained anyway?
